Do you blog and write about science? Do you know someone who does and want to nominate them for inclusion in an anthology of science writing?

Click here to nominate a blog post for The Open Laboratory: The Best Writing on Science Blogs 2008. You can nominate as many entries as you wish, but they need to to have been originally published between 12-20-07 and 12-01-08 to be eligible.

Topics include:

“Mathematics, astronomy, cosmology, physics, chemistry, earth science, atmospheric/climate science, marine science, biochemistry, genetics, molecular/cellular/developmental biology, anatomy/physiology, behavior, ecology, paleontology, evolution, psychology, anthropology, archaeology, and/or history of science, philosophy of science, sociology of science, science ethics, rhetorics, communication or education, the business of science, the Life in Academia (from undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, faculty or administrative perspective), politics of science, science and pseudoscience, science and religion, etc.”

I’m thinking of maybe submitting the “Seamonkeys in your Pants” post, or the follow up, “There are Pubic Lice in my Mailbox.” What do you think?  (Mostly, I just want some reward on the trauma of seeing this.)

  1. You should go for it! I will gladly nominate you.

  2. There is a possibility of editing for print, i.e., two related posts can be fused into a single essay if chosen by the judges.
